Ambassador Testimonials

Alliance Ambassadors Cohort 1 


"My parents didn't believe that their daughters would go to college. Once they saw me applying and I told them about The Alliance, they were very happy because it took a great weight off their shoulders financially. It can be done."   

Joselyn Perez - Psychology

CSUSM Graduate: Spring 2018

Graduate School: University of Connecticut - Doctorate Program


"I have never doubted myself - nor have I ever doubted I would go to college.  The Alliance helps to reinforce one's mental outlook that college is possible." 

Jesus Perez - Applied Physics

CSUSM Graduate:  Spring 2019

Graduate School: UCLA - Physics and Astronomy - Doctorate Program


"As an Alliance ambassador, I have challenged myself to go beyond my potential and grow as a first-generation student. Scholarship funds like these are not only about the money, but about the chance for the opportunity for students like me to accomplish their goals."  

Maribel Gamez - Human Development, with an emphasis in Counseling Services

CSUSM Graduate: Fall 2018

"I have a great support system at home. However, the Alliance provides a refuge from distractions and gives me additional educational guidance on a professional level that I need to succeed."
